Games have gotten better and better at simulating real life over time, and where boxing games are concerned, a lot of that simulation consists of reproducing the brutality of the sport: the cuts, the bruises, the knockout punches, the spray of sweat and blood after a big blow. EA Sports' Fight Night Champion looks more brutal than any of the boxing games before it -- you might have seen the trailer for its bare-knuckle fights before, but this one focuses on the visible effects of boxing.
This is the kind of game where the developers use phrases like "facial deformation" to describe the fidelity of their graphics technology, and since Fight Night Champion is rated M for Mature -- the first EA Sports title to have that distinction -- you know that it's going to bring the pain.
Fight Night Champion will be out on March 1st for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
